My insurance won't give me stuff I need, like a rollator walker and shower chair. Access Partnership did not have the items I needed when I called but said they would add me to a wait list and contact me. I figured I would be put on a list and never hear from them again. Another person forgotten in the system. But sure enough, Laura called me back within 2 weeks to let me know she had 2 of the 4 items I wanted. I couldn't believe it! I have faith Laura will call when someone donates the other items I need. Access Partnership is an organization that keeps promises and follows through!!
I don't have insurance and after a fall, suffered a bad break in my thigh. I called United Way for help and they referred me to Access Partnership. They were able to give me a wheelchair. It has been a blessing! Since I cannot put any weight on my leg, I would have been stuck and relying on everyone else. At least now I have some freedom.
My mom is wheelchair bound, but thankfully can still move form chair to chair. Access Partnership remembered we have been searching for a Bariatric Wheelchair, and today they were able to provide us with one! Which now means, instead of my mom being stuck in the house she can get out and go shopping with me or run little errands, just able to go do anything to get out of the house! I'm just so very excited for this weekend now, I'm defiantly taking her out lunch and who knows where else we might go, our options are endless thanks to you Access!
My husband has a history of strokes and suffers from immobility. He has now developed painful pressure sores. Access Partnership was able to provide us with a patient lift, to help move him around, and also an air mattress. This will keep him more comfortable and help with preventing more pressure sores. I only wish I found out about them sooner. Thank you Access Partnership!
After reading some of these reviews I just wanted to share a little bit of my experience with Access Partnership and how they helped me. To start with, I was my mothers primary care giver. She had numerous debilitating health problems, but was blessed with medical insurance that covered her needs. I seriously don't know what I would of done if she didn't have insurance to cover the massive amounts of supplies she required month to month, not to mention the medical equipment that was also needed. After she passed, I had so much on my plate, including a large amount of unused medical supplies and medical equipment that was now just sitting around taking up space. Unable to return anything to the suppliers, I was at a loss as to what to do with this stuff, throwing it out just seemed like such a waste to me. I know how much these things cost and just knew that there had to be someone somewhere that could use it, I just didn't know who or how to find them. So I did some research, and when I found Access Partnership, I was so excited knowing they could redistribute these medical supplies and equipment to people in need that couldn't otherwise afford them. Access, you are such a blessing to our community and only wish others were as compassionate and dedicated to helping those in need as you are. Thank You!
Sometimes I can afford my XXL adult diapers. Sometimes I can't. Access Partnership always helps me on those off months when I don't have enough to make ends meet and cover my butt (literally)! Thank you! Y'all are a blessing!!
We moved in with my dad to take care of him and found out how costly adult incontinence products can be. On his limited income he cannot afford them but between our help and the help from Access Partnership, we got him taken care of!
My wife and I were high school sweet hearts and looking back on the life we had planned together all those years ago, we never dreamed we would be going through the situation we are currently in. My wife was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) last year, and we were devastated to say the least. My wife at this stage is now has lost all voluntary movement below the waste, and I have been having to lift her to basically do anything that requires any use of the lower body muscles. This has really been taking a toll on my own body. I have been so worried I will hurt myself with the constant care my wife requires and then we would really be in trouble. Unable to afford the much needed medical equipment that would greatly help us out as this horrible disease progresses, we contacted Access Partnership and they were more than helpful, they were a God send! They were able to provide us with a Trapeze Bar, which was great because my wife can still use her arms and this will give her some much needed physical therapy. They also were able to give us a Patient Lift! This has just been such a blessing! I can now move her in and out of the bed and/or wheelchair with a considerable amount of ease, giving my old back a much need break from all the lifting. We were also provided with other medical supplies that will go a long way in keeping my wife comfortable and well taken care of. I honestly don't feel I could say thank you enough! You have change our quality of life, making this difficult transition a little bit easier. We both thank you Access, from the bottom of are hearts. May God bless you and the community you serve!
I'm so glad my Aunt called for help. My mom had brain surgery earlier this year. While recovering she got an infection and was in a coma for 30 days. After she came out of the coma, she began working with a physical therapist. She started making some progress but has a very long way to go. The insurance discharged her anyway and we had to scramble to find supplies. Access Partnership was able to give me a wheelchair and offered to connect me with anything else I would need during this difficult transition. Thank You.
I work full time as a preschool teacher and cannot afford dental insurance but make "too much" money for government assistance. Access Partnership connected me to a voucher program that alleviated my dental pain and saved my tooth! Thanks Access Partnership! Now when my students make me laugh, I don't have to hide my smile.
I am a part time staff member and was able to connect a domestic violence victim with much needed mobility equipment they left behind when they fled a situation.
I have COPD and am on oxygen. I had a portable machine that broke and my insurance wouldn't cover a new one. I have been stuck in the house for over 3 months. Someone told me about Access Partnership and I called them for help. They didn't have one but told me if one was donated they would let me know. Out of the blue they called and had one for me! Most places will forget about you unless you keep bugging them- but they remembered and I have my portable oxygen machine so I'm not stuck in the house anymore!!!
I had a client that had had the same shower chair for 20 years and I couldn't believe that. My boss told me about Access Partnership and they were more than willing to provide me with a shower chair for my client. I can't wait to surprise her with it. Thank you so much Access!
You do so much for the community. You guys truly are a blessing. I have a client who lives in a very bad flood zone and they lost a lot of their furniture because it had grown mold. You guys were able to provide me with a lot of different things that will help this family immensely. Again thank you so much and God bless you.
Thank you for all that you do for the community! You guys always help where you can and do an amazing job with it.
There was a gentleman that suffered from a stroke and it has effected his arm in a terrible way. A friend called Access Partnership for him and they had the proper equipment he would need to ensure his arm was given the support it would need. Thank you again Access!
Over the weekend an elderly gentleman's house caught fire and he lost everything. Besides memories and personal belongings, he also lost his oxygen concentrator and was unable to get another one from his insurance company until a sufficient amount of hoops are jumped through. Access Partnership was able to provide him with that oxygen concentrator so at least it was one less thing he had to worry about while dealing with such a tragedy.
Thank you for your help. I just talked to the Collection Agency, my Acct with them has a zero balance. Evidently your email on my behalf worked. God Bless you and the staff at Access.
I have to say that what this organization does is amazing! I thought that there would be a small cost or catch to receiving any equipment, but when they told me it was completely free a weight lifted off my shoulders. Now I have what my mother needs when she comes to my home for visits. I would gladly volunteer my services to your organization because helping the community is such a satisfying thing. Thank you so much for your help and everything you do for our community.
I just have to say thank you again for your help in giving me what I needed. I had been getting the run around with trying to find a replacement face mask for my CPAP machine, and was tired and frustrated. I am glad that I was referred to you to find help. I am completely grateful for your kindness.
